Healthy, Hearty soup. The aroma while it's cooking is wonderful. I found this in a magazine, made a few changes. You'll love this soup.

Beautiful, yummy, hearty, but much too salty. Definitely cut down on the salt next time. I will make again. Family loved it and wouldn't have said anything about it being salty had I not pressed them. I added a little bit more chicken broth as it seemed a little thick. I was looking for more broth.
